Contributors to 'Feminist Moral Philosophy', make connections between recent feminist developments in moral philosophy and mainstream moral theory. Some of the essays do this by reworking traditional concepts of moral philosophy, such as virtue and responsibility, in light of feminist insights. Others put traditional moral theories, such as Kantian ethics and virtue theory, to work on feminist problems. The result is a contribution to both feminist ethics and moral philosophy broadly understood. Contributors: Lara Denis, Tracy Isaacs, Diane Jeske, Christine Koggel, Rebecca Kukla, Carolyn McLeod, Christine Overall, Ruth Sample, Susan Sherwin, Nancy Snow, Lisa Tessman, and Mariam Thalos.
